I wish there was an easier way to keep track of all the latest updates for games in Early Access because we’ve certainly missed quite a few for The Forest. Hey Endnight Games, start sending out more press releases please! :)
Anyways, the latest update for the game, which was released about two weeks ago now included a rather big announcement for the game that seemingly everyone missed. According to the update on March 17th, Endnight Games is currently working on upgrading The Forest to the Unity 5 engine which will, “provide a massive visual and performance increase for everyone.”
The update continues on to say, “We’re really excited for you guys to see how the world looks with the better deferred renderer, and improved lighting/shading. We’re planning on officially switching to unity 5 for this next upcoming patch (0.16) which will be out in 28 days! [April 14th]”.
The Forest has received a ton of gameplay updates since its release last year and the developers are continuing to add new features and updates as the game nears its beta phase of development. Endnight also announced that The Forest would be arriving on the PS4 in 2015 at PlayStation Experience last year.
We’ll be sure to update you again on The Forest when the Unity 5 update is released, so stay tuned to OnlySP by following us on Facebook and Twitter for all the latest.
